As long as you have a good hard case for it, the plane is fine. I took both of my guitars with me on the plane when I moved countries and they are old guitars (one made in the 60's, the other in the 50s). Usually the lass who checks you in gets you to take your baby to a different counter for weird checked in luggage and it gets fragile/heavy stickers slapped all over it.

But if a 50's Archtop can survive a plane trip, then shiny new ESP should be able too.

Cost is all based on weight, my man. So if you're taking bugger all else with you then it could cost you nothing. Ask your airline (actually it should say on your ticket/email the airline sent you when you booked) what the weight limit is. If your luggage combined (that you're checking in) is over that limit then be prepared to pay.
